 I got an Ibis Mojo SL special blend for £1911 the other month so that was a good deal, when you take into account the price of a frame. Granted, Ive swapped out all but the cranks, but selling the bits off it to go towards other better bits was a great help. There was never any need to change any thing actually but thats how I roll. My names Peter and I swap out bike parts when theres simply no need.

 Go to your local bike shop (if it's independent) and haggle, as long as they're still making making some profit on something they'll probably be happy to make a sale rather than having you go on-line. That's how it is where I work anyway.
  • + 1
 I brought this point up in another reply I did. What I would be prepared to do is go to my LBS and see if they can match the price of something I can get on line, if they can then happy days id purchase it from them.

 You guys are dumb as a bunch of rocks for kicking out your GF. I kept mine and stuck her on a street corner (9pm - 3am, cant keep her out too late shes got to get up at 5.30 for her shift in the poultry factory) and now I can afford all the cool bike shit I want. Yes she moans now and again but I remind her how much enjoyment all the stuff im buying gives me and then she quiets down and gets herself ready for her shift. Its ironic shes become an actual bike so I can buy stuff for my bike. Its a win win situation any way you look at it though.......for me any way.

  • + 5
 I think online stores are great for us riders who aren't millionaires and/or those like me who enjoy the bliss of PayPal and CRC so I can order shiny bits while sat on the toilet. However online stores will never be able to replace bike shops for their services like repairs etc which a lot of people don't have the knowledge of. I reckon bike shops would do better if they didn't panic about not selling as much as they used to, but getting more involved with their local biking community with helping out at dig days/races etc. I'd be more inclined to help out a local bike shop if they helped out with other stuff too

 It really sucks every month Pinkbike puts up this giant ad that basically slowly helps put local shops out of business. I own a local shop and we buy our products for almost twice what the big online stores do. They are buying at OEM prices and selling to customers what we have to pay for the same products. I realize that these giant online stores do a ton of advertising with you guys but why not have a local shop of the month feature to show you support both sides and not just the ones that pad your pockets. Ill tell you what, I will give every pinkbike user 20% off of everything I sell parts and accessories wise. Everything, not just lasts years stuff that they trying to dump. Put your money into a local shop that is supporting local employees and their families instead of lining some investors pockets. Go talk to your local shop and give them a try. I have mixed emotions about CRC since they support WC racing but all the other shops that are online only can kiss my A$$
  • + 1
 I feel for you bud. I support my LBS but there are times when these massive on line stores have deals too good to pass up. If it were an option I would give my local bike shop the chance to match the price I can get something for online (and so get my business) but the reality is they probably could not as they dont have the buying power of the huge on line stores which is a shame cause you cant beat the feeling of going and physically buying something from a shop. And I agree, maybe Pinkbike could do regular features on the best LBS in different places.
  • + 1
 Two of the four featured stores are brick and mortar shops. Every business model is doomed to fail if it refuses to evolve. Online stores will never replace LBSs. They will, however, put some out of business. The ones that don't offer anything more. If you can't compete with lower prices then you have to compete with service. Or niche products. ITunes pretty much put cd stores out of business. Well, not all of them. Just the ones that weren't willing to change. Online stores are not going away, and I, for one, am happy about that. I also support my LBS. Both can coexist as long as they are willing to evolve.
  • + 1
 Very true, I agree with everything that you have said. I didnt know about the 2 businesses actually being bike shops as I just looked at the pictures and didnt actually read any thing but the comments. To compete the service should go above and beyond, because good service costs the bike shops nothing does it. And further, will ensure the customer goes away feeling like a million dollars and more likely to return. But saying that, in my experience some LBS only seem to make a fuss if you are spending big bucks. Some people I have encountered are just complete wankers and look down at you from the time you walk through the door. And like you said evolving is key.
  • + 3
 Many local bike shops have to order the product in because they can't afford to stock a lot of high end items and also many LB shops will match prices if you bring in an add

 Support shops that support the scene. I.e dig and maintain tracks, have a team and organise races. If I was to buy a DH bike in the UK I'd go to Pearce Cycles in Ludlow.

 How does crc make any money with such low prices and free shipping on items over 100$?
  • + 2
 Lots of stock and clients. Sell massive amounts of product with minimal profit on each item. But hey it starts to add up!

flag badburke (Mar 13, 2013 at 8:42) (Below Threshold)
seriously why should i have to spend five grand just for local shop to maybe give me 10% of of product later on! and when they dont have the part they say they will order it for me and charge me msrp and shipping. Oh man you should support your local bike shop!!!!!Why because they do so much for me?
  • + 2
 And not pay tax.
  • + 1
 @badburke Next time ask them if they price match, because usually a lot of shops will or they will get the price pretty close to the only price. If they don't then find another shop to go to
  • + 1
 They also got in quite a lot of trouble from Shimano a little while back, because they were bulk buying components under the pretense that they were building their Vitus bikes with them. While this was true to a point, Shimano found out that they were also selling them to customers. Shimano flipped (they were doing them at massive discounted prices because they were buying so many and they were MEANT to going on bikes) and they nearly lost their contract with them. Same reason why Cube aren't being sold on CRC. Don't believe me? if you've ever ordered off CRC and the part/whatever you've ordered came in just a plastic bag or something like it (i.e. no official packaging) it's an OEM part designed to be put straight on a bike and not sold to you. So that's how they can sell Easton Haven wheels at 55% off, if any of the Vitus bikes have them specced, chances are they're doing that again.

 Good going PB for steering more business away from the brick and mortar shops.
  • + 1
 To be fair to PB they need to earn a wage too - they'll be paid for this I'm sure... Also, the companies listed do invest back into the cycling industry - CRC sponsors various races here in the UK and runs a World Cup team for example. I think the argument is more complex than you make out and it's not like you don't have freedom of choice.
  • + 1
 My local bike shop can't sell that cheap so why would I want to go there? Infant if you phone and ask for a price 9 times out of 10 its different when you get to the shop. So, if they can pick and choose which customer gets the best price what's wrong with putting my bank account first?
